Sunday Walking Tour of Historic Downtown Syracuse

July 8, 2018 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Ways of the Weighmaster Lunchtime Lecture

Take a special Sunday walk with us on the Erie Canal and through the downtown Syracuse heritage area! The Erie Canal Museum presents guided walking tours of historic downtown Syracuse on a regular basis beginning Saturday, May 19. This tour follows the route of the 19th century Erie Canal, a man-made waterway that was the engineering marvel of its time. The tour begins at the Erie Canal Museum, takes participants through Clinton and Hanover Squares, and ends back at the Museum. Examine how the waterway fueled the economic development of New York State and the country, how it shaped this Upstate New York community, and discover how the neighborhood has changed since the days when the Canal ran right through the heart of the city.

Additional tours are scheduled for July 19 and 27 at 11:00 a.m., and other dates during the summer. This walking tour is free for Erie Canal Museum members and $10 for the general public. Members are asked to call (315) 471-0593, extension 12, to reserve a  space.

Free parking is available in the lot across the street under routes 81 and 690. For more information, email Make your reservation for this special event today!
